Ann-Maree Gentle


Ann-Maree Gentile was born in Melbourne, Australia, 1966.

'Some of my most vivid childhood memories revolve around the things I created and the joy of finger painting. I failed art in high school and returned to study ceramics as a mature age student. It was probably the best decision I ever made.

I now have my own studio gallery in leafy Warrandyte and I spend my life making quirky little sculptures with a real sense of whimsy and joy. Thereís a strong pop influence in my work and as sense of nostalgia that harks back to my childhood.'

Artist statement:
'Planting the seeds and reaping what you sow. Itís not a new concept, and not just for women, but how all humanity manifests their vision for better future. This instillation is a reflection on this idea.'
